Dani Traphagen is a technical enablement developer for DataStax, where she develops and runs their internal training programs. Her passion for teaching began while working in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at the University of California-Berkeley, where she taught scientists technical skills, helped create a Data Science course, and raised awareness about the growing open science community. Dani has since volunteered with or generated training content for a number of organizations including software carpentry, women in technology, rOpenSci, and GitHub. Prior to that, she worked in Cartilage Tissue Engineering at the University of California, San Francisco. This was where her interests for heavy machinery, science, and code first fused. If you don’t catch Dani behind a computer, you’ll often see her in the wild, backpacking, riding her bike, or climbing things. She also makes sure to keep the coffee business afloat where she resides in Portland, Oregon.
